Item description for God's Unfailing Purpose: The Message of Daniel by Michael P. V. Barrett...

Where is God? This is often the question of skeptics, scoffers, and even troubled souls. Trials and tribulations of one sort or another crowd our personal lives, while corruption, conflict, and catastrophe command the world scene. Indeed, where is God in all of this? Asking the question is fair enough; answering demands caution. God's Unfailing Purpose: The Message of Daniel is a cautious and biblical answer to that question. This book focuses on the heavenly throne from which God rules according to His perfect will and unchangeable, unfailing purpose. God is in absolute control of all things: the big issues of the world, as well as the seemingly bigger issues of our lives. Daniel's view of history and prophecy shows that God's kingdom is coming and that God's will is being done on earth as certainly as it is in heaven. Daniel's message is simply, "Not to worry--everything is under control."

Publishers Description
An in-depth look at the subject of time in the book of Daniel beginning with a history of the area during Daniel's life, continuing with a study of Daniel himself, and concluding with a study of Daniel's prophecy related to his world, our world, and the world to come.

Reviews - What do customers think about God's Unfailing Purpose: The Message of Daniel?

God Is in Control  Jun 12, 2007
Former Bob Jones University professor and present President of Geneva Reformed Seminary, Michael P.V. Barrett has used the text of the Old Testament book of Daniel to demonstrate the sovereignty of God over human events. While admitting his own premillenial position, Barrett's approach to Daniel is a breath of fresh air compared to that of others who have written on Daniel's prophecies for he refuses to speculate beyond what can be reaped from a careful exegesis of Scripture. Using what can be plainly understood in Daniel's apocalyptic literature, the author shows how God is moving history according to His own pre-ordained plan. In the process, he reveals the falacy of open theism.

Though "God's Unfailing Purpose" employs a substantial amount of historical information, Barrett states up front that his book is not a commentary on Daniel. For this reason, he has written in an inspirational style and avoided footnotes and bibliographical information. This is the one major drawback of the book. While he makes brief mention of where the interested person might turn for more information, he has given no specific references for historic data he presents. For most people, searching through Josephus's "Antiquities of the Jews" for a particular historical incident is like looking up a word in an unfamiliar language. For this reason, the actual usefulness of the book is limited. Someone of Dr. Barrett's credentials would surely have been able to add a few more pages to his book by footnoting sources and references from which he has drawn his own information. While "God's Unfailing Purpose" is both inspirational and accurate in its presentation, the omission of such details will leave some readers frustrated.
